    Is Moleskin Done?

    I actually really like handwriting notes, especially in meetings. While PenUltmate is nice, I fond the workflow between it and Evernote a bit clunky. I liked the notebooks from Moleskine as an elegant solution that crosses the physical and digital. I dont mind mind using another brand of notebook, as long as the functionality is the same and I can search handwritten notes.
  2. Does anyone know if Moleskine has officially stopped making Evernote notebooks? If so, are there plans for any alternatives?

    Getting to Know Evernote v8.0

    You are right, I can, but I can’t create full handwritten notes in the Sketches panel. Because it is designed for drawing, it actually attempts to correct some lines and messes up handwriting. Really, what I’m looking for is functionality similar to Notes in iOS, but I think Evernote can do even better by implementing PenUltimate’s functionality (handwriting, templates, etc.) directly into Evernote.

    Getting to Know Evernote v8.0

    I really like the new interface. I only have two suggestions: To migrate PenUltimate functionality into Evernote. Evernote is the only notes application that I must switch to a seperate application to handwrite notes (Bear, Neebo, OneNote, even the built-in iOS Notes app supports this). It is so close with the ability to enter in sketches, but it is still not conducive to handwriting. Reminders for individual Tasks. I know I can set a reminder on a note, but not for the tasks in that note. I think this is particularly useful when using some of the project templates posted on your site. Being able to set Tasks with individual reminders means I can have one list for a project, with multiple Tasks, each with different dates. Having an “All Tasks” view would be the icing on the cake, giving me visibility into every task I have across all of my notebooks. I often forget what note has a particular task item, especially if I didn’t set a reminder. I love using Evernote, but these two issues (the first one in particular) has kept me from fully committing to the Evernote system. Other than those two, however, I do love Evernote!! P.S. One hidden gem you all have on iOS is the integration with Workflow... what a great set of automated tasks!

    Notebooks exist... but they do not

    Have you checked to see if it is in Evernote, and not PenUltimate? And check the trash to see if it is in there...

    iCloud Integration

    That is a good solution, and I am familiar with AppleScript. Part of the idea was for people who aren't so familiar. Also, what to do on iOS? Though, maybe Workflow can do it...

    iCloud Integration

    I love the integration now between Google and Evernote. I would love to see similar integration with iCloud and/or the macOS Apps Calendar and Reminders. The idea is simple enough (though I know execution is far more difficult ): If I create a checklist in a note, it can sync to the Reminders app, a due date would appear in Calendar, and a meeting in Calendar would allow for a meeting note to be made in Evernote.

    Request: Handwriting in Evernote for iOS

    That is true, and the sketch Padi area is nice to have. The thing is, we may type something and then want to annotate it, or draw around it. Or the reverse... writing something and then typing next to it. And, having a separate app just for handwriting is cumbersome. The pages are imported as read only, and there isn't much crossover. In some ways, I'd enjoy using a moleskin over penultimate (which Evernote has and they are quite nice). for me, I'd just love to have one app wherein my business notes, my web captures, my journal, my sketches, are all in one place... a living, breathing, body of work, captured, editable, always changing and evolving.
  9. I understand the desire to keep Penultimate a separate app. However, there is a big gap in functionality, when you have to create separate notebooks for the same project. Evernote's writing capabilities are not to the same level as Penultimate, but I cannot directly add a Penultimate note into an Evernote Notebook. The closest equivalent is to find that Penultimate note in Evernote, and then link that note in the Evernote Notebook. The simple solution would be to make the Evernote Notebooks available to Penultimate, and add the ability to create handwritten notes in those notebooks. That way we can have our handwritten notes side-by-side in the same notebook. Even if I have to go back in to Penultimate to modify the handwritten note, at least it is in the same place, same Notebook.

    Smart Notebooks

    You could for a basic search, but let's say you want to search for multiple tags, and a search term. Or you also want to limit that search to select notebooks. The idea is that you may have notes in separate notebooks, but that would all go together for a project. In that case, I could go back through and re-tag all those notes, but this idea would be simpler. A Smart Notebook is a saved search (with the ability for complex search queries)... it would just appear as a notebook with all the others.

    Smart Notebooks

    That would actually be the beauty of this type of Smart Notebook... It doesn't actually move anything at all. Think about if you use the search feature in Evernote. The Smart Notebook would essentially be that search, saved and displayed as a notebook.

    Smart Notebooks

    One thing I would love to see is the ability to create a "Smart Notebook", or a notebook or stack based on search criteria. Essentially, we would be able to create a notebook that is based on either a search or tag(s). There are often notes that I take, or websites I capture, that would fall under multiple notebooks for multiple projects. Being able to put a note about underwater photography in my "Photography" notebook, and then create a new Smart Notebook under my ecotourism project stack that would have those pages I tagged as "Photography" and "Diving", as well as a search for the term "camera housing".

    Evernote for iOS 7.9 Released

    I give credit where credit is due... This is a huge feature. Thank you for adding it. I would only ask one thing: The sketching is separate from the text in the note. That isn't bad, in and of itself, but it has the limitation of not being able to circle or draw on existing text. Any drawings would take place beneath it. Not the end of the world, but something I would definitely find useful. I'd also through in support for Pencil by 53 as well. But great work! You have definitely brought me back to Evernote from OneNote for the majority of my note-taking!

    Request: Handwriting in Evernote for iOS

    I agree. Handwriting in Everntoe does not need to packed full of features. The major advantage of having the ability is two-fold: handwritten notes in like with text, and basic mark-up. While things like diagramming would be a plus, the primary focus is the writing capability. I use Evernote for my job (I work in IT) and having the ability to quickly jot down a thought or comment, while I'm walking around, or be able to mark up something I typed in a meeting are the biggest things. Right now, the best combination I have for all of these is Paper (for diagramming), with OneNote, where I have type notes as well as sketch all in line, and which Paper now exports to. The thing is, ideally, I don't want to be beholden to Microsoft, and Evernote is a provocative alternative. Above all, we all would want the best handwriting experience possible, with support for the top styli, and basic highlighting, all integrated with our typed notes. We don't need fancy calligraphy, or different types of writing utensils. Get the simple core right and you'll have us at hello.

    Evernote for iOS v7.7.7 Released

    I'm just curious... in Evernote for Android, you have the ability to write within the same note that you type... why is this not something that is in iOS? For myself, as a systems administrator, that is perhaps one of the most powerful and useful features. While I know there is Penultimate, that is a separate app, with separate notes. And while I can move those notes into the same notebook, it isn't nearly the same thing. To be able to annotate a note that I typed, or to draw something and then type a note next to, above, or below to describe it more... that is perhaps the single most useful function to me. It leads to a larger question of differences in functionality across the platforms. From small ones, such as the iOS version missing the option to insert a line, which is present in the web and desktop versions, to larger issues like what I described above, it makes it difficult for me to use, and to recommend, Evernote as a tools for work. With Onenote for free, and the improvements coming in Notes for Mac, I would argue that it behooves to brilliant minds of the Evernote team to consider the cross-platform unification of functionality. And to bring handwriting to Evernote in iOS!
